I’m about head off to the Hauptbahnhof to board the train that would take me to my next destination. I have mixed feelings about leaving Cologne – somehow, I feel like I’m leaving an old friend behind. It’s hard to explain – maybe because Cologne and I have some sort of history which is why, unlike when I left the other places I went to recently, I now feel … Continue reading Auf Wiedersehen Koeln.
I know it’s way too early to say goodnight, especially since it’s only 7:00 pm here in Amsterdam, but I’m turning in early because I’m completely knackered!

I’m looking forward to … Continue reading Hogwarts and Harry Potter

I’ve been preparing for this trip for over a year and it’s well worth the scrimping and saving and everything in between. Paris is a wonderful city – it’s so rich and full of history, you can’t … Continue reading Au Revoir Paris!
